Call for Papers

The American Shakespeare Center, in partnership with Shakespeare's Globe 
in London, will host its fifth Blackfriars Conference, "Inside 
Out/Outside In," in honor of Andy Gurr in Staunton, Virginia, from 20-25 
October 2009. Registration fee includes tickets to the ASC productions 
of 1 Henry IV, Merry Wives, Titus Andronicus, Much Ado About Nothing, 
and The Rehearsal by George Villiers (et al); opening and closing 
banquets; a special presentation by the ASC actors honoring the work of 
Andy Gurr; and Paul's Menzer's Shakespeare on Ice, a play and cocktail 

We are inviting proposals for papers on topics to do with early modern 
drama in performance, including but not restricted to the staging, 
texts, design, repertory, personnel, and the business of plays in early 
modern England. Paper presentations are limited to 10 minutes 
(presentation without actors) and to 13 minutes (presentations with ASC 
actors). Presenters should be aware that they will hear the sound of a 
thundersheet when two minutes remain and will exit pursed by a bear when 
time is out.

In order to submit a 300 word abstract and a short bio to Sarah Enloe, 
Director of Education, by 30 May 2009, go to the ASC website. Please 
include a brief statement saying whether or not you would be interested 
in having your work in a volume of Blackfriars Conference essays.
